About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath, Sleeps 6

You'll love relaxing at our charming yet spacious home after visiting area colleges, museums, historic sites, and all the other great things Boston has to offer. We're located steps from public transportation, and also an easy drive to the Back Bay, medical area, or downtown. Our quiet, tree-lined street is safe and within walking distance of several restaurants, stores and a playground.

The first floor has a well-equipped modern kitchen that opens onto a family room with large screen HD TV, a dining room with seating for six, and a large living room with fireplace. There's also a deck with grill and grassy area out back for the kids to play. A half-bath is also located on the first floor.

There are three large bedrooms on the second floor, two with queen beds, one with a full size bunk with a twin on top. There is a renovated, full bath with tub and shower on the second floor.

The house is located on the Brookline/ West Roxbury border with easy access to the Green and Orange MBTA lines. We're also within walking distance of the commuter rail, which gets you into BackBay or downtown within 30 minutes. We're a 10 minute drive from Boston College, 15 minutes from the Longwood medical area, and 30 minutes from Logan Airport. While convenient to Boston's historic, cultural and shopping sites, the house also is close to several beautiful parks where you can bike, walk or hike. These include the Arnold Arboretum, Larz Anderson, and the Blue Hills.

There's plenty of free on-street parking as well as a driveway providing access to an additional parking spot behind the house.

Truly a "home away from home"

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for a family. It is so organized with anything and everything that a family may need from pots and pans, utensils, etc. to baby spoons. So comfortable and tastefully decorated, it was a pleasure for our stay. We loved the porch swing! There is a great restaurant a mile away called "West on Centre" which we highly recommend. The owner could not be more helpful. She is wonderful. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

I would recommend this home to anyone!

  • 5 of 5

Great home and a great host. This was the perfect place to be for our daughter's college graduation. The home was charming (just as it says) and comfortable. We had everything we needed including a surprise bottle of wine! This was our first VBRO experience, but because of Donna, it will not be our last.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent this Christmas with our married children in this lovely home. It was truly perfect for the six of us.

The house was clean and welcoming. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. My family loves to cook and we found all the pots, pans and utensils we needed to make some wonderful meals. Donna left us a nice bottle of wine which we also enjoyed - lovely touch.

The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. We also had plenty of linen. The listing description and pictures were accurate.

We were able to spend some quality family time and we felt right at home. We had the pleasure of meeting Donna and her husband who were the most gracious hosts.

We all agreed that we would love to stay here again should our travels bring us back and I would recommend it to my family and friends.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely. The owner has even taken great care to make sure everything you could need is there. There was a travel coffee mug and even an umbrella for use. The location is safe and quiet.

Car: recommended

The best of both worlds - close proximity to all Boston has to offer without the noise and parking hassles of downtown. We're located on a quiet, tree-lined street with plenty of free parking. BC, Fenway Park, Boston Children's Hospital and other hospitals in the Boston Medical Area are all within 5 miles of the house. Easy access to public transportation (both the subway and the commuter rail), Routes 9, 128 and the Mass Pike, enables you to easily explore all the great sights in the city as well as in the surrounding area.
